be unanswerable in terms of the time line in a hypothetical. what if this had come out during the election campaign? >> it's something that the political team here at the wte house is glad they didn't have to test that hypothetical. i can tell you for now, they feel as if the political fallout is a distraction. president has a press conference tomorrow. the first one since winning re-election. it's going to be dominated by the petraeus scandal, by the fact that there seems to be a lot of unanswered questions. what took the fbi so long in notifying the white house, things like that. the president would rather be focused on the fiscal cliff negotiations. what are we going to do by the end of the year. the deadlines don't go away. but politically, they believe they're insulated here, because petraeus isn't considered an obama guy. if anything, he's more of a republican guy at the end of the day. >> thank you both. to chuck's point, this as a distraction overshadowing what would otherwise be the big story in washington right now. congress returning to town, getting back to work to the business
